Gevrey-Chambertin is a large town located at the northern end of the Côte de Nuits. It boasts one of the largest surface areas under vine with no less than 330 hectares under production, of which 85 are planted with Grands Crus.
The Grand Cru slope which faces east for ideal exposure to the sun, begins south of Gevrey-Chambertin.
From among the 9 Grands Crus, both Charmes-Chambertin (22.5 ha) and Mazoyères-Chambertin (18.5 ha) may be marketed as Charmes-Chambertin. Part of the vineyard extends down to the N74 highway. Its location is exceptional as the soil is stony and shallow with a high level of active limestone and the vines produce very elegant wines.
100% Pinot Noir, the king grape of Red Burgundies.
The perfect companion for poultry, roasts and game. Will be ideal with a honey-roasted duck and also goes well with French cheese, in particular the famous Epoisses from Burgundy.
8 to 10 years even more in good cellaring conditions.
Serve ideally at around 16°C (61°F) to respect its complex aromas and reveal its subtle spicy notes.
